Merrick and Rosso left loyal listeners heartbroken when they gave up their gig eight years ago, however the two have reunited!
Back in 2009 their quick and witty banter came to an end when Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross announced he wanted to leave the show.
“As much as it pains me to leave, it’s time for me to do something different,” Rosso said at the time.
Following his announcement, there were rumours that Rosso quit after a fight with his co-host, Merrick Watts. However, Watts was quick to shut down the rumours.
“This has nothing to do with Rosso and I not liking each other,” Merrick said, “no fights, there’s no carry-on, there’s nothing like that”.
And on June 7, the boys reunited on Merrick's current radio show Merrickville.
The two bonded over their previous experiences.
"Most of the 90s we were touring somewhere and were hung-over,” Rosso said on Merrickville.
“Remember when we went to one of the music festivals in Brisbane, Livid Festival? We had a big night and then the next day, I think we had about six or seven hours to kill ... We had a room, but it was that long ago that if you wanted to watch a movie, they’d bring the VCR into the room.
At one stage, the boys were in hysterics as they Merrick relived hilarious memories.
And it seems fans did too! With several of them taking to social media to talk about the reunion.
The Duo were some of the most renown stars on Australian radio. They initially built a massive fan base on Triple J and then eventually left the station to launch Nova in 2001.
